Treating Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injury can have many consequences, not the least of which is the costs it requires to treat. Sadly, insurance companies rarely even begin to cover the full expense of traumatic brain injury, abandoning families to struggle to cover these astronomical costs. That’s why you need an experienced brain injury attorney on your side as soon as possible following your accident.
If you are in need of a brain injury attorney in Seattle or surrounding areas of Washington, please contact The Hornbuckle Firm online or by calling (425) 679-0742 to schedule your free consultation today.
The Cost of Recovery
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the average cost of recovery from a mild brain injury is $85,000. A moderate brain injury can result in expenses closer to $941,000, and treating severe brain injury can run into the millions. In fact, the estimated cost of simply caring for a victim of brain injury ranges from $600,000 to $1,875,000 over the course of a lifetime. Most victims are lucky if insurance offers to cover one-third of those expenses.
Treating traumatic brain injury often necessitates emergency surgical intervention and long-term inpatient care. Following release from the hospital, a team of medical specialists will be required to begin what is likely to be a long and arduous rehabilitation process. In most cases these specialists will be paid separately, increasing monthly expenses and placing additional strain on victims and their families. Tragically, even with the assistance of specialists, full recovery is never guaranteed.
